An old quote paraphrased from Poet Robert Burns says: “The best laid plans of mice and men, always come to some bad end.” The socialist Utopia imagined by the Biden Administration is a plan like that. Now they are attempting to force all 50 states to establish regulations which would “track greenhouse gas emissions and set declining emission targets for cars on the highway.” In other words, it’s Biden’s attempt to FORCE you to buy an electric car. It falls under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and will be noted in the NPRM (National Proposed Rule Making) in the Federal Register – watch for it under the GHG Emissions Performance Measure.
“The Transportation Department’s proposed rule to force states to regulate CO2 emissions from vehicles on highways is preposterous because it has no basis in law.”
Myron Ebell, director of the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Center for Energy and Environment (Daily Caller)
Mr. Ebell is right, but as with Biden’s attempt to force states and other entities to do what he wants, there is a catch. Federal HIGHWAY FUNDS. And they are using the infrastructure “law” to push this agenda. How many cash-strapped states will fall into this trap? The government is proud to say the Intrastructure bill was bipartisan – but that’s because most of the legislators didn’t read it. And those who did are obviously lovers of socialism/communism.
Biden’s attempt to force states to comply with “climate change” regulations
From the US Department of Transportation website:
“Today, to advance President Biden’s commitment to combat climate change and bring down costs for families, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for states and municipalities to track and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) makes available more than $27 billion in federal funding to help State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) meet their declining GHG targets. The new rule would take two important steps to combat climate change:”
